BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, July 24, 2003 � On April 26 and 27, 2003, 135 emerging and established photographers fanned out across Brooklyn�s diverse neighborhoods as participants in a photo documentary event. The purpose of the event is to showcase the glorious breadth of cultures and lifestyles that are found throughout Brooklyn's 65+ neighborhoods. The results of this momentous event will premiere at Brooklyn's Borough Hall in an exhibition hosted the by the Office of the Borough President, Marty Markowitz. 80 framed prints will adorn the walls organized by the 55 distinct neighborhoods they represent. All 475 photos submitted in connection with the event will be presented in portfolio books at the exhibition, organized by photographer.

The photographers primarily came from the New York City/Tri-State area and participated on an entirely volunteer basis. An online photo gallery can be viewed at www.adayinthelife.org/brooklyn representing one image from each photographer, from their assigned neighborhood.
